"Here is a compelling, relevant, and accessible presentation of the possibilities of transformational learning for the adult education classroom. King offers a model for the design and implementation of learning opportunities that may facilitate transformational learning. Presented through stories based on research, this book provides a vital understanding of transformational learning and its application to the classroom. Based on King's experience with adult educators in many settings, the potential of transformational learning is brought into the context of the educators' reality, the learners, and the classrooms. This book addresses the specific contexts of adult education practice in continuing higher education, English for speakers of other languages, adult basic education, workplace education, and faculty development."
